The three Republican candidates vying for a shot at the Yavapai County District 2 Supervisor’s seat faced off in a debate July 11 at Beaver Creek School.

Republican Yavapai County Supervisor District 2 candidates, from left, Martin Pangburn, incumbent Tom Thurman and John McReynolds introduce themselves to the Beaver Creek community during a debate at the Beaver Creek School on July 11. The Republican primary winner of the three will face  independent Buck Buchanan and Wes Lance, who lists his political affiliation as “other,” in the November election.The debate was sponsored by the Beaver Creek Regional Council and as such, many of the questions asked dealt specifically with issues of concern to the local community.

The candidates are Martin Pangburn of Dewey-Humboldt, a former employee of Del Webb and construction company owner who also has operated a ministry around the world; John McReynolds, a 35-year resident of Camp Verde who owns a local barbecue restaurant and served on the first Camp Verde Interim Town Council; and incumbent Tom Thurman, a contractor and former phone company employee who lives in Prescott.

Although Thurman is the incumbent, he’s never represented the Beaver Creek area.
